We Are Motorhead
Released: 2000, CMC
When a new release comes out from Motorhead ,you don't have to hear anything from it beforehand because you pretty much know what you're in for. And Lemmy, the granddaddy of metal, doesn't disappoint here. "We Are Motorhead", the bands third release on CMC and umpteenth overall, serves up 9 new tracks and one cover.
Opener "See Me Burning" features the superb double bass showmanship of drummer Mickey Dee. "Stay Out Of Jail" "Out To Lunch" and "Stagefright / Crash & Burn" are typical Motorhead tracks, but there are a couple of suprises. The ballad-esque"One More Fucking Time "offers some nice soloing from Phil Cambell, then their's the closing title track "We Are Motorhead. "This baby starts with the classic "Ace of Spades" riff, as Lemmy proceeds to spew forth the mission of this band, proclaiming "We Are Motorhead-born to kick your ass......." 'Nuff said. The Only Filler really is the cover the Sex Pistols "God Save The Queen." Not that there's anything wrong with it, It's just I could've done with another original. Long Live Lemmy.
